Summary
Telling BITS of history as they really were! In 1788, beautiful Australia became a prison as England sent their convicts to the new colony on crowded, smelly ships. And when they arrived, they brought the stink with them. Life as a convict was tough -- flogging was frequent, food was scarce, and they knew almost nothing about farming. Let alone their new home. Life as a convict stank -- in every way! Welcome to the most STINKY look at Australia yet!
